  • Difficulty
  • 2-3 free range organic eggs
  • 30g strong cheddar, grated
  • 5-6 baby tomatoes, halved
  • knob of butter
  • sea salt and black pepper
Melt the butter in a small saucepan then gently fry the tomatoes until slightly soft.

Stir the grated cheese into the egg and add a pinch of sea salt and a grinding of black pepper.

Add the egg mix to the tomatoes in the pan and stir every now and then til the eggs are lightly set. What I do with scrambled eggs is only keep the gas on for a minute, then I turn it off and let the saucepan do the cooking. You want scrambled eggs that are not set solid but remain nice and creamy.

Serve with a slice of buttered sourdough toast, and a small sprinkle of extra cheddar.
